La Moneda is preparing for another bitter pill. Unlike what was done for the plebiscite, their communication system made no special effort to encourage voting, hoping that if fewer people voted, they could improve their candidates’ chances. The official parties are fortunate that next Sunday’s election will not be parliamentary or municipal. They are also lucky that the presidential election is still far away. But they should not misuse their luck.
To put the September 4 debacle behind them, Borić and the ruling parties turned the objective of “continuing the constitutional process” into an emergency flag, and they agreed to a new experiment with the opposition without thinking much of it. succeeded in the Result. , What a great irony. Everything indicates that what continues next Sunday will be a rejection.

What explanation will the ministers of the political committee give on election night? Presumably, they will resort to a singular form of denialism: the result does not directly affect the president, as it was a contest between different lists to elect representatives to the Constitutional Council, an institution created by a constitutional reform that was endorsed by Congress. Was from the opposition parties. In other words, the government has nothing to do with what happened. They can’t believe it.
The new process was a passion of Boric’s and games that were played for acceptance, were fine to turn the page on defeat and breathe again. The President, with the direct support of former President Bachelet, overused the power of the President to put together a list of FA, PC, and PS. But not only that. The election acquired the character of a civic declaration on the national situation and, in particular, on the course of government.
Pro-government parties were somewhat mistaken in believing that they could recover from the referendum defeat by maneuvering to score a kind of symbolic victory. He also imagined that in this way the responsibility he had in re-establishing the Convention and expanding the text that had divided Chile would be lost in the mist. They got bad accounts. They are just realizing that the country was not what they thought it was.
believing that the rejection was a circumstantial and irrelevant fact or the result of people’s misunderstanding of the merits of the constitutional project, or that it was because leaders sometimes go too far, as Boric put it, is associated with persisting in error. If reality contradicts the shining paradigm they are supposed to defend, then so much worse for reality. Because of that, they clashed with the royal country.
At what point is the reflection of the counselors on the second floor about what is coming? Is there a true reflection that goes beyond the interests of government parties and wants to see Chile on the world stage? Such an effort would be valuable. Unfortunately, it is not visible. What should they consider first? There is no need to generate destabilizing dynamics that can do great harm to the country (in health, mining, etc.).
The government favors only stability, and it is public safety that is at stake these days. This law needs to be restored where it fell to the ground. Are they seriously analyzing the situation in La Araucania in La Moneda?
The desire for order and security, the demand to curb crime, and the demand to control illegal immigration will gain momentum in the election. This has been expressed in all elections and the election campaign has reflected it above the constitutional question.
One way or another, the feeling that the disapproval synthesized 8 months ago will once again be expressed in the election. There is a very wide current then and now against political violence to protect and reform what Chile has built over many years, in favor of reforms that do not destroy the national life, in the resolute defense of freedom. That’s the majority.
In this context, “down with the fake and undemocratic constitutional compromise”, a proclamation supported by politicians and far-left groups called for a null vote. It was signed by former presidential candidate Marcel Claudel, the University of Chile academic Sergio Griez, activist Dono Totoro, and former MIR leader Andres Pascal Allende. Also by various groups including the Equality Party, the People’s List, and the Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front.
The text synthesizes the old demolition program that an egalitarian society was believed to bring about. The revolutionaries did not seize power in October 2019, and there is an unrelenting resentment towards what he calls the “Chile of the 30s”. His call to nullify the vote coincided with calls made by former Communist deputy Hugo Gutierrez, current independent deputy/PPD Camilla Musante, and independent senator Karim Bianchi. And it may have resonance among Broad Front and PC voters.
The official parties are fortunate that next Sunday’s election will not be parliamentary or municipal. They are also lucky that the presidential election is still far away. But they should not misuse their luck. Obviously, the turmoil they have been in all these years hasn’t given them time to think about how they want to come out of it all.
